Re: how to use external USB DVD writer in FC5

Hello,

I have an external DVD writer (Samsung SE-S164) connected via USB to my machine running FC5 ( 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5).

The system messages tell me that the writer is being detected:
<SNIP><SNIP>
However, I am not able to see this writer in Gnome. If I put a blank DVD in the writer, I do not get a window pop up asking if I want to burn a DVD and neither do I get an icon ("Blank DVD") on my desktop. I do get an icon if I put a blank CDROM in my internal CD writer. Any idea how to get the external writer working in a similar fashion?

I have hal (0.5.7.1), udev (084), dbus (0.61), and I belong to a single group (of my username red).

thanks,
->HS






So, nobody is using an external USB writer on FC5?
